Every time you sin
you are transported
to the foot of the cross
the quiet agony is there
the smell of sweat, leather, earth, wood
the taste of blood and tears
Christ looks up and  recognizes you,
since you have been there before
He will not ask why
He knows
He will not remind you of promises past
He knows
He will not forgive you
forgiveness has taken place
for this sin
and so many others
He will not give up on you
even in his pain
And that is your true agony
And greatest joy
